I have been working at Rite Aid

Pros

Had a wonderful supervising pharmacist. Most fellow employees were a delight to work with. Schedule was fairly flexible.

Cons

Pay scale was very low for the amount of work and responsibility required. Was required to go through the Rite Aid certification course and test even though I had been nationally certified for 5 years. Upper management had no clue what it was like to work in the store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Require district managers to actually work in the pharmacy for 2-3 years before being in a management position.

    It is a professional practice environment, but more tech is needed.

    I worked at Rite Aid

    Pros

    Most coworkers are excellent people, fun to work with, and knowledgeable. My peers enjoy the practice as much as I do, and the public sees it.

    Cons

    The staffing levels are quite lean, in some cases leading to hours long backlogs of work, with no time for a break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please allow for more manpower behind the bench to properly serve the patients, and to maintain a proper inventory of pharmaceuticals.
